A good workout is my way to start the relaxing. Without it, I just can’t seem to completely get rid of my stress. After, I like things like photo projects, reading and watching movies with hubby.

I love reading, I am definetly a bookworm. And I also like to bust out my craft box when I can. I have a scrapbook for each of my children and I like to make cards and such. Currently I am making my wedding bouquet and hair accesories for my daughter.

I can’t do it with being pregnant, but ever since I could walk, I would spin around in circles and sing. I know, very weird habit to keep into adult hood, but the dizzy feeling is relaxing for me. I don’t lead a very stressful life anymore, so I can just read forums on the internet to relax. When its the summer, I will also take walks.

I agree…a glass of wine, moscato for me, while skimming through some interior design magazines helps me relax. I also love to saddle up my horse and ride, even if it is freezing cold and snowing outside. 🙂

Watch a mindless movie-usually something girly

Cleaning…I know I am weird. But I can’t relax if things are a mess.

Cooking

Take a walk

I am making my first scrapbook ever and that is actually really relaxing!

Eating comfort foods in front of the TV in my pj’s

I used to love hot baths, but have had to skip those since I’m pregnant now. I’ve started prenatal massages though.

My husband likes to make fun of me b/c I love getting my eyebrows waxed and find that really relaxing.

  • cooking, but only when I am in the mood
  • reading with a glass of wine
